Made famous by Ernest Hemingway, a bar called La Bodeguita del Medio in Havana, Cuba is thought to have invented the Mojito. This recipe is rumored to be the original, authentic version of the light, fresh, minty concoction.
Havana Club ~ is rum made in Santa Cruz del Norte, Cuba. The brand was established by José Arechabala in 1878. After the Cuban Revolution of 1959, the distillery and company was nationalized by the Cuban government; subsequently, the Arechabala family left for Spain, then emigrated to the United States. Since 1994 it has been produced by Havana Club International, a 50:50 joint venture between Pernod Ricard and the Cuban government. #Cuba #Spiritis #Rum #Havana_Club
